With just the limber teams to paint/re-base for this 28mm army, I thought now is probably the best time to add some pictures to the web site. There is only a small window of opportunity here (time wise) before I get distracted by a shiny new project. Wanting more than just a simple gallery I have been working on some basic uniform guides as well as figure and basing information for each of the divisional units. Linked to the pictures below are Artillery, and infantry brigade pages showing each respectively in more detail. I will also add a support/reserve page with horse artillery and cavalry unit details at a later date.
The Order of Battle detailed below is my own. Commander and unit wise it is mainly based around information from Mark Adkin’s book The Waterloo Companion.
However it should be noted that this list is intended to represent the commanders and unit strengths as they were before the action at Quatre Bras and as such differ from every list I have found thus far.
Foy’s division sustained around 800 casualties at Quatre Bras and most lists (I have found) are either post Quarte Bras or seem not to take these losses into account. The numbers listed below are probably airing on the high side, but by averaging and adding (more less) the casualties detailed above across the two brigades is how I came up with the unit totals shown below.
In short for the purists out there that know better I salute you, for those like me that don’t this is just my best guess, please treat it as such.
